Roddie Bryan, Man Who Filmed Fatal Shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, Charged with Murder

By The Associated Press | MassLive

The Georgia man whose cellphone video of Ahmaud Arbery’s fatal shooting helped reignite the case was charged with murder Thursday, making him the third person arrested more than two months after the slaying.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said 50-year-old William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. was arrested on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment. Agents later searched Bryan's home, several TV stations reported. The GBI said in a statement that it would hold a news conference Friday morning.

Bryan lives in the same subdivision just outside the port city of Brunswick, and the video he took from the cab of his vehicle helped stir a national outcry when it leaked online May 5.

The video quickly drew a strong reaction from Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican who called it “absolutely horrific.” The Georgia Bureau of Investigation soon took over the case from local police, and the arrests of the McMichaels followed on May 7.

1. Government trying to make it less political

Only makes it more political. He has every right to follow to idiots and film them. No way you can prove he was anything other than an informed curiosity seeker. Paparazzi And journalists do the exact same thing; get a lead on a story, follow the leads, film the story.

Liberal tears a coming.

2. If he had not filmed the incident or shared the clip there would be no case. (n/t)

3. Why would he be charged with murder ?

This is absurd.

Is the Government trying to intimidate citizens from filming criminal activity ?
